IT would be well for the traveling community to
bear hi mind that their security depends entirely
upon their own encouragement of boatsthat have.ara-
may be at the expense of procuring the above app

an invention admitted by all men who understand the
principles, of the Steam Engine, to be a sure preventa
tive against those dreadful disasters. You have cer
tainly, in:the hundreds of explosions that have already
taken place, their almost daily occurrence, and the
thoushaili pf lives that have already been lost, a suffi
cient wahrug, and inducement to make inquiry for a
Safety guard Boat, and in evety case to give it the
preference. They have went to an a dditional expense
that your lives may be secure. Ought you not therefore
to meet them with a corresponding degree of liberalitY,
and by your preference show that you a ppreciate their
laudable endeavors to stop this awful sacrifice of hu
man lif.. They do not charge more than other boats;
their accommodations in other respects are equal, and
in many cases superior, and as there is one leaving
